Murshidabad, Feb 8 : Congress MP and minister of state for Railways Adhir Ranjan Choudhury has refused to apologise following the incident of Congress workers ransacking the district magistrate's bungalow, allegedly led by him, here on Thursday.

"You are making a mountain out of a molehill. I will not apologise to anyone. If there is anything wrong, the police is free to take action against my workers and me," Choudhury told NDTV.

"We went to meet DM but he refused to meet. Our workers got angry. It's the DM's employees who turned violent. I was the one who tried to calm things down," he told CNN IBN after the incident.

According to reports, hundreds of Congress workers, led by Choudhury, went on a rampage at the bungalow after the district magistrate refused to meet them when they went to complain about the alleged custodial death of a Congress worker in January. The workers reportedly broke flower pots, pulled down a sun shed and smashed the windscreen of a vehicle.
